JASMINE Curtis-Smith is slowly proving her critics that she can step out of her sister Anne Curtis’ shadow. Add to that, she is about to claim her independence soon.
“Payag na si Ate (Anne) na bumukod ako. ’Yun nga lang, ako ang mabagal kumilos. And besides, I needed to stop fixing things because ayaw ko naman maging selfish amid what has happened in our country recently. I opted to help first,” Jasmine told Bulletin Entertainment in a recent interview. Anne’s younger sister has helped a number of charity events and fund-raisers for the benefit of the survivors of “Yolanda.”
“I’m not rushing to move out kasi napaka-hospitable naman ni Ate sa bahay.” The 19-year-old Kapatid star quipped, “If you get to live in a place where everything is free, bakit ka naman aalis agad-agad, ’di ba?”
While she has confirmed the plan of moving out of Anne’s place, Jasmine remained mum on reports saying that she will be transferring to the latter’s network, ABS-CBN.
“I don’t know. Let’s see… I know my manager will take care of me. Mama Betchay (Vidanes) has always wanted the best so whatever she thinks is the best for me, that’s where we will go,” she said.
Her being a TV5 talent is one of the factors why Jasmine thinks that a project with rumored boyfriend Sam Concepcion is unlikely to materialize.
“I’m with TV5, he’s with ABS-CBN. It’s hard to say also, but yes, why not? Okay lang, masaya naman ’yun (to have a project with Sam).”
Jasmine, who is currently taking up Communications at Ateneo de Manila University, also refused to comment on the real score between her and the singer-actor. “I don’t attend to those status updates pero I’m happy.” (Jecelyn V. Macahindog/mb.com.ph)
